|Chandra Spacecraft Animation - NASA/CXC/D. Berry|
MPEG *Broadcast Quality [ # ] This artist's conception begins with the Chandra X-ray Observatory as it passes in front of the Moon. Chandra, one of NASA's "Great Observatories," does not orbit closely around the Earth. Instead, its highly elliptical orbit takes as far as one-third the distance to the Moon. Operating in space since 1999, Chandra detects and images X-ray sources that lie within our Solar System to those billions of light years away...

|Bootes Field Animations - X-ray: NASA/CXC/CfA/R.Hickox et al.; Moon: NASA/JPL|
MPEG This survey, taken in a region of the Bootes constellation, involved 126 separate Chandra exposures of 5,000-seconds each, making it the largest contiguous field ever obtained by the observatory. At 9.3 square degrees, it is over 40 times larger than the full moon seen on the night sky, which is shown in this graphic for scale. [Runtime: 0:12]

|Chandra/Hubble Comparison Animation of CDFN - Animation: NASA and G. Bacon (STScI)|
MPEG This video compares the large area in the northern Chandra Deep Field, observed with the Chandra X-ray Observatory, with the smaller region viewed with Hubble's Advanced Camera for Surveys. The video begins with the Chandra field, which is over half the size of the full moon, and then zooms into the field to show several supermassive black holes [the red blobs], before dissolving to the Hubble image...
